Workshop Nanotechnology at ACHEMA 2015

During the ACHEMA 2015, World Forum and 31. Leading Show for the Process Industries, the NANORA Project is hosting its final conference from 17.-18. Of June 2015.


NANORA, the Nano Regions Alliance of north-west Europe, and Hessen-Nanotech offer two days full of nanotechnology know-how. On June 17th, NANORA's conference provides a European perspective on nanotechnology, showcasing successful support of nanotechnological developments by SME.

The next morning focuses on "Analytics and Surfaces with Nanotechnology". Company representatives and researchers show, how nanotechnology can improve analytical applications or surface properties. Later on June 18th, the talks will deal with the question "Why funding is more than getting money?" Learn about European funding programs, what networks can do to support your efforts or which aspects are central when getting in touch with corporate or classical venture capitalists and where important differences are.


All sessions of the workshop will be held in Room Dimension at Hall 4.2, close to the booth of the "Technologielinien".



WHEN: 17.-18. 06 2015

WHERE: Room Dimension at Hall 4.2 @ ACHEMA 2015, Frankfurt/M., Germany

The workshop is free of charge, but registration is mandatory. Deadline for registration is June 11th 2015. Please register for the workshop using the online form. Participants will be provided with one day tickets to ACHEMA 2015 in order to get free access to the events.
